WowSwap: A Decentralized Protocol for Leveraged Trading

WowSwap operates on top of PancakeSwap decentralized exchange which is based on BSC (Binance Smart Chain). It is the first Decentralized protocol that offers leveraged trading on PancakeSwap. Moreover, the protocol is fully community-owned and is created on the basis of a very simple idea. The idea states that the liquidity providers can actually create a BNB (or BUSD) pool and users who want to trade can borrow these funds to purchase five times more tokens on the PancakeSwap decentralized exchange.

It means that you can use WowSwap to borrow extra BNB(or BUSD) from the pool in order to purchase and sell your favorite tokens with five times leverage. Moreover, the liquidity providers can earn the interests by supplying the BNB to the traders through the lending pool. The Wow token is considered as the governance token. Therefore, the Wow token holders will have the ability to decide the liquidation ratios, the interest rate for borrowers and lenders, protocol fees, and more.

WowSwap Leveraged Trading Protocol

WowSwap has also launched its first leveraged trading protocol on BSC as well on 12th April 2021. Leverage trading was considered only for the highly trained investors but crypto has changed it entirely. Currently, you can open your margin trading account on almost all the major digital currency exchanges. However, if you’re using a centralized platform for trading then the operator will have complete control over the rules of leveraged trading such as liquidation procedures, assets and capital lending rates available for leveraged trading, etcetera. 

WowSwap goes one step ahead to democratize leveraged trading and to empower its community. By using the WOW protocol, you can create and use a common liquidity pool as a liquidity provider and users who want to trade can also borrow these funds for the leverage’s trades. The borrowing rules will also be established by the WOW community members who will be holding WOW tokens.
